The first teaser trailer has been released for Carol, the new film from director Todd Haynes.
Starring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy and Sarah Paulson, Carol is due to receive its UK premiere on Wednesday 14th October 2015 at the Odeon Leicester Square as part of the 59th BFI London Film Festival’s American Express Gala.
A young woman in her 20s, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens.
While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband (Kyle Chandler) threatens her competence as a mother when Carol’s involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) comes to light. As Carol leaves the comfort of home to travel with Therese, an internal journey of self-discovery coincides with her new sense of space.
Carol is based on Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel, The Price of Salt, and has been adapted by Emmy nominated screenwriter Phyllis Nagy.
Carol will be released on 27th November 2015.
